I am looking to apply to masters programs in applied math for admissions either in spring 2013 or fall 2013, and would like to know what schools I should look to apply to. Here is my profile:

GRE General Test
Q: 161 (84%)
V: 154 (76%)

Any help as to which programs I should apply to would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming that you're interested in economics, right? I don't know too many programs that are good for that because I'm not dealing with economics.

By the way, have you taken the math subject GRE? Doing well on that can go a long way to help you into programs.

No not really interested in economics at all anymore, just applied math as it says at the top and the bottom (particularly non-linear PDEs as well as Chaos, though I am open to just about anything).

I have not taken the math subject GRE since I was under the impression that most schools did not require or use it as an admissions criterion when someone is applying to a masters in applied math.
